The Sims 4 update adds top surgery scars, hearing aids and more

A free patch for The Sims 4 which includes a bunch of inclusive items such as binders, hearing aids and glucose monitors has been released for PC and console.

The Sims 4 has never shied away from bringing inclusivity to their game. This was seen last year when the game introduced pronoun options for your sims as well as giving the ability to customise their sexualities.

Now it seems that the life simulator has introduced a wide variety of items available in Create a Sim. These are focused on your transgender sims as well as those with disabilities. 

A bunch of new medical wearables

The new items include glucose monitors and hearing aids. Hearing aids can be selected for your sim from toddler-hood onwards and are available in a variety of colours. You will be able to find them under the ‘medical wearables’ tab in CAS.

They can be assigned to each ear with the option to wear them on both sides. Glucose monitors are available for sims from childhood onwards and you have free reign to place them on either their arms or abdomens.

A shoutout to the Trans community

In addition to these medical items, top surgery scars are now available. They can be added to both masculine and feminine frames and can be found in the body category. In addition, binders can now be found in the Tops category. Shapewear is also a new addition found in the underwear tab. 

Fans have taken to Twitter to express their gratitudes. One person wrote “I finally get to see myself in game” with another saying this was “a huge dub for the transmascs.” 

What’s next for The Sims 4?

The update also released a bunch of quality of life fixes as well as the addition of light switches and easier navigation for console players. This also comes after the news that a new update will be releasing in March. This will introduce the ‘infant’ stage to a sim’s life after complaints over the years that the babies did not bring much to the game.
